From the AAEC Editorial Cartoon Collection. Cartoon by John Riedell. Uncle Sam, wearing swim trunks and a beret, sits in a beach chair beside a small table on which is a bottle of wine. About half the wine has been drunk. Uncle Sam holds the bottle in one hand and an empty glass in the other hand. Legs crossed, one foot rests on a pillow with stars. His eyes are closed as if in sleep, and the drawing indicates he is drunk. A double row of missile warheads form a barrier to one side of Uncle Sam, and a sign reads "New defense gap." On the horizon, Mao Zedong and Leonid Brezhnev watch. The cartoon caption reads, "Will we have a Maginot Line?"
